Elite Screens, which specializes in affordable projector screens, recently announced its Manual Projection Screen with a Slowed Retraction Mechanism (SRM). According to the company, the SRM allows the screen to retract slowly back into its casing without being assisted by the presenter.
"It is a simple device that makes the operation of a manual projection screen more convenient and it extends the product's operational life span," said David Rodgers, marketing manager for Elite Screens, in a statement. "The SRM allows the presenter to pull the lanyard and let it go, allowing the screen to retract by itself without ever worrying about the material getting jerked up into the casing and damaged by the retraction spring."
Traditional manual projection screens have a spring-loaded mechanism that will retract the projection surface so quickly that the force of its return may actually knock the entire unit out of its installation, according to Elite. SRM is meant to address that situation.
Additional features include its auto locking mechanism for variable height settings, black masking borders, wide diffusion uniformity, lanyard for convenient operation, and an end cap design that accommodates both wall or ceiling installations.
Manual Screen sizes are available from 85 to 120 inches in a choice of 1:1 and 4:3 NTSC aspect ratios. Manual SRM pricing starts at $89. Elite offers a three-year warranty program to educational, government, military, and houses of worship organizations.
